21 Thoughts That I Have Preparing For Midterm Week

21 Thoughts That College Students Fully Have Preparing For The First Midterms Of The Year

Things I don't like hearing, "hey, can you send me your study guide?"


Welp, I've reached that point in the semester already for midterms. I almost think midterms are worse than the finals themselves because It's like the first big test of the semester that professors have and I always have questions on my mind. Here are 21 questions for midterms that I'm willing to share (but honestly I had like 100.) It's my Junior year of college and I don't think anyone ever gets used to college-level tests. I think students adapt but every semester is different professors so we're constantly learning and we're constantly adapting.

1. How many tests do I have?

2. How many questions are on each test?

3. Which test do I have to force myself to take first?

4. How long will it take?

5. Is there a study guide for it?

6. No study guide? Hmm, how will I study then?

7. I wonder if I should form a study group for this. Nah, I doubt anyone will respond to my message.

8. Okay, so I'm doing this thing solo.

9. The week before the test* I should probably start studying today.

10. I think I'll wait until I can sit down and re-read the readings and go over the assignments again.

11. Days pass* Time to start studying and making a study guide so I can review.

12. Things I don't like hearing, "hey, can you send me your study guide?" Um sorry, but no I can't send it to you because if I do all of this work for myself to try to do good in this class then I'm pretty sure you're capable of doing it too.

13. Okay, I studied a little bit, I'll be fine right?

14. First test over with, four more to go.

15. Why is college solely based on tests? Like what if I'm a bad test taker?

16. If I get a certain score, how will it affect my grade?

17. Oh great, I'll be fighting for a C in this class for the rest of the semester.

18. The second test, check. The third test, check. The fourth test, check. Yay, I'm finally done!

19. Thank goodness that's over, now I can sleep and relax for a little bit.

20. Goes to class the very next day*

Professor: "This week we will be focusing on your presentations and semester essays."

Other students and I are thinking: "Whyyyyyyy are you like this?"

21. The list goes on and on and on. But college will be over with one day, I just don't know how to enjoy these not so fun parts of the college experience. But I promise that I'm trying.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
